Rick Steves

New and existing traders will now have access to trade on more markets such as Eurex, trade via the TradingView platform, ability to trade on their mobile device, 2FA security, and Mac OS compatibility.

Apex Trader Funding has integrated NinjaTrader / Tradovate in a move that addresses strong demand from its community of customers.

Founded in 2021 and headquartered in Austin, Texas, Apex Trader Funding is a futures prop trading firm with a thriving community of traders including more than 25,000 members in 150 countries.

Access to more markets, TradingView, mobile, 2FA, Mac OS

New and existing traders will now have access to the following benefits:

  • Ability to trade on more markets such as Eurex
  • Trade via the TradingView platform
  • Ability to trade on their mobile device
  • 2FA security
  • Mac OS compatibility (browser based)

Most recently, Apex offered traders a number of benefits including the ability to keep the first $25,000 per account, twice a month payouts and only having to trade evaluation accounts for seven days instead of ten to qualify for a PA account.

Darrell Martin, CEO and Founder of Apex Trader Funding, said: “The integration of NinjaTrader / Tradovate into the Apex platform is a result of our team listening to the needs of our traders. Traders can rest assured that Apex will continue to work hard to deliver for our trading community as we work to set ourselves apart from our competitors by delivering a trading platform built by and for traders.”

NinjaTrader features CME Event Contracts on mobile and web

Last year, NinjaTrader debuted CME Event Contracts on mobile, providing investors with a straightforward way to access a handful of the world’s top futures markets.

Offering smaller-sized, daily expiring products will allow investors to predict the daily closing price of up to 10 of the world’s most popular financial and commodities markets.

In a statement, the US-based software provider highlighted the apparent benefits of these new daily options on futures contracts. Among other things, it offers short-term trading opportunities for individuals seeking to take a position on daily price moves using smaller-value trades.

Specifically, each contract requires a commitment ranging from as little as $0.25 to a maximum of $20, with a successful trade resulting in a $20 payout. Similar to options trading, participants have pre-defined risk as they can’t lose more than they invested, and results are available immediately at the market close.

Through the mobile or web-based experience, NinjaTrader enables users to trade using their knowledge of the futures benchmark equity index, energy, metals, and foreign currency futures markets with risk limited to the amount of the trade.
